Recently I was on the phone with my brother. He told me he had been reading the blog and enjoying it. Pleasantly surprised I asked if he had any feedback. He said something to the effect of “You know that living in New Jersey I don’t get to hunt and fish much these days, so while I like some of the introspective stuff at the end of a story I want you to catch or kill something”.
With that in mind, while it is nice to wax poetic about the pretty country native fish live in here’s a few photos of the fish themselves. For the record, these fish fell into the catch category and they were released not killed. Catching trout in their native range is about as cool as it gets. For me that means various cutthroat subspecies.
